If you suffer an injury or fall ill and somebody else was to blame then the law states that you are entitled to seek compensation for the physical, psychological and financial hardships that may result from your ailment. Therefore, if you were to suffer a serious electric shock due to the action, inaction or negligence of another party then this would be a prime example of a situation where you may be owed this kind of compensation.
With this in mind, someone who has been in this situation may well be tempted to jump straight to answering the question, ‘How much can you claim for an electric shock’, but there are also a number of other question that you need to find the answers to. This article therefore, will provide answers to the following questions; ‘When might you be able to claim?’, ‘How much can you claim for an electric shock?’, ‘Who can help you to claim?’ and ‘How do you get in touch with them?’.
When might you be able to claim?
In general terms the answer to this question is that if you have suffered an electric shock injury and somebody else was to blame within the last three years then you are able to seek compensation. If the injury occurred longer than three years ago then you are unfortunately no longer able to claim, unless the injury occurred when you were still a minor.
